What if...

Santa couldn't deliver the presents?

Arthritis can cause overwhelming fatigue.

Support cutting-edge, high priority pain research across Canada through the Breakthrough Arthritis Research Fund.

Wrapping presents. Decorating the tree. Enjoying winter activities. For people living with arthritis, the physical and emotional burden of pain can be debilitating and have a serious impact on quality of life. In fact, 40% of Canadians with arthritis report that pain limits their activities.

No one should have to live with debilitating pain of arthritis. That’s why here at the Arthritis Society, our commitment to fund excellent research projects and develop innovative solutions to address this serious challenge has led us to contribute to bold initiatives like the Breakthrough Arthritis Research Fund.

Over 6 million Canadians experience the daily impact of arthritis. What if they didn’t have to? You can help.

Arthritis affects people of all ages across Canada. By 2040, the number of Canadians living with arthritis is set to grow by 50%.

Supporting high priority pain research across Canada

The Breakthrough Arthritis Research Fund is a critical research fund that will help pave the way for researchers to discover new insights into pressing questions around arthritis pain. Questions like: why pain can be more severe in some people than others, why some people don’t respond to available pain medications, how to deliver new treatment options with fewer side effects, how to tailor pain management for each person and how to support people living with arthritis pain.

With your generous donation to the Breakthrough Arthritis Research Fund you’ll help invest in the latest cutting-edge research on what causes arthritis pain, how to manage it effectively and the development of new treatment approaches.
